HAPPY NEW YEAR BRETHREN
Thank you for the opportunity to serve the Lodge for a second tour. We are hard at work, building the line with solid structure in place for the next three years, while we mentor others to follow. The Hall Association has done a wonderful job maintaining the building. A new roof was put on in August, the entire Fellowship Hall has been painted, and we now have movie theatre type seats in the lodge room.
We are planning a golf outing, Spring and Fall breakfasts, and a chicken barbecue for Spring. Keep up to date with these events in the monthly notice and support our fundraisers. We can arrange home delivery for those who are unable to drive to the events.
The new year will also usher in new direction as the Right Worshipful Grand Master was installed on December 27, 2015. We are anxiously awaiting the details of his two year plan. School of Instruction will now be held at Manheim Lodge, deemed the most central location in the First Masonic District.
I do anticipate the first alormer’s and veteran’s programs will be held in April and October respectively. In the Summer, we will hold an open house. In the Fall we will participate in the Millersville Community Parade and celebrate our Masonic heritage with a Table Lodge. I have planned to have several speakers and look forward to an indoor picnic in June. Not to be forgotten, we will begin to structure a plan for the 150th Anniversary. Next up will be the official visitation by our District Deputy Grand Master Larry A. Derr on March 9, 2016. Please mark your calendar and call, email, or write me or the secretary with personal news of yourself or other members so we can share your experience.
